Exagear packages versions are correct.
Could you please run Skype and then in parallel run the following commands in ARM terminal:
$ free -k
$ top

Please post the outputs of these commands, I'll check how much resources are utilized on your device when Skype is running.

Also I am re-testing Skype on the latest Raspbian version that was released this week. There is no pulseaudio in Raspbian by default now. I am going to check how it influences on Skype. I'll let you know the result.

Hello.
Additional info: I had to do a fresh install. Now 9 out of 10 test calls work. However, the moment I select video settings - I get logged out for about 2 seconds & have to log in again 2 seconds - total 4 seconds - this is NOT a reboot.

Ok. So voice calls are now fine as 9 of 10 calls is a good result for not power efficient RPi device.

Now about the camera issue.
Reboot and log off might happen because of the memory shortage on your device. I see that the swap size is 102396. I recommend you to increase the swap = 2GB. here is the tutroail how to do that:

This is NOT a reboot, it is just a log off for 2 seconds.

Increased SWAP to 1024 no difference in any way.

Could you please send me the output of the following command from ARM terminal:
Code: Select all
cat /var/log/syslog


executed after the video call and log off.

Are you using remote desktop?
I see that the error is in vncserver connection. I've never tested skype with vncserver, perhaps there is some incompatibility there.

This is the error message from syslog:
raspberrypi kernel: [ 166.197039] uvcvideo: Failed to resubmit video URB (-1).

This is the kernel issue. And it might be caused by power shortage as described here:
